Better Know A Blogger: LaToya - Lazy Girl Reads

The Ultimate Reviewer's Challenge is over but I still have a few Better Know A Blogger participants left to feature. Today I'm welcoming La Toya!

*What is your name/blogger name? Well, my name is La Toya but you can call me Lah! And my blogger name is LazyGirl!

*What is the name of your blog? My blog's name is LazyGirl Reads. Not because I'm Lazy by any means, but originally, I figured I wouldn't read as many books or post as many blog entries as everyone else. I have proven myself wrong about that ha!

Karen: Good for you! I have to say I'm the opposite. I started with the intentions of posting often but have gotten lazy.
*Do you have an auto-buy author, someone whose writing is so good, you have to read every single thing they write? Previously, it was Iris Johansen. Then I read something of hers that I just hated. I mean absolutely hated. So now I'm in limbo a little bit! I'll need to read a bit more David Levithan before I know but I do enjoy his stuff! 

Karen: I loved Dash & Lily's Book of Dares which he co-wrote with Rachel Cohn but I haven't read any of his other books yet. He is an author that people always recommend to me though.

*Who is your all-time favorite couple in literature, and why? (Or favorite male/female character)
This is gonna sound cheesy but I love Harry Potter. Sure he was a complete jerk in Book 5 and the movies have almost distorted the way I remember him but he's my favorite!

*Do you have an e-reader? Do you prefer e-books or regular books, or use both? No, I don't have an e-reader but I would imagine I would prefer one to a real book if took a lot of trips on planes. But for now, I'm devoted to the printed word.

*What are your Top 5 picks for the best books of 2010?
Okay, best books that I read in 2010 in no particular order:
Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin
The People of Sparks by Jeanne Duprau
Kiss the Girls by James Patterson
Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Karen: That is probably the third time Before I Fall has come up in Better Know A Blogger! I have it sitting right over there....LOL Must get to reading it soon.

*What book or series has been sitting in your TBR the longest? Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials

*What's the best thing about blogging and reviewing books? The best thing is meeting people who think reading is as awesome as you do!

Thank you La Toya for being part of Better Know A Blogger!!


  1. YAY for Lah! When I first "met" her, I was like, you're SO not lazy, what's up with the name? LOL! I love her, she is so fabulous!

    You gotta fit in His Dark Materials somewhere! I own that and have read the books a few times. They're really good. I need to see the movie version at some point.

  2. Hey there! Just visited and followed your blog. :-)

  3. Thank you sooo much for this awesome post! I read it on my iPhone because they don't let us blog at work!

    I sent you an email but just wanted to thank you publicly for this! :-D
